Driven AM Presents:
Saturday, December 6th 2008


100% Original

Driven AM is proud to present a night of all original music.
Each DJ this evening will be playing strictly their own material.
Expect a night of exclusive music from some of the best Drum and Bass producers in the world!


Dj's for the evening:

RANDOM MOVEMENT
(Driven AM | Bassbin | Innerground | Bingo | Creative Source | Liquid V | Westbay | Ohio)

Random Movement began as two people, Jack Sheets (DJ Shapeshifter), and Mike Richards (Insert, later known as mjr). Mikes exposure to the drum & bass genre was solidified by Jack's wide variety of music, and Mikes ongoing study as a musician was pushed even further into the world of electronic music. Jack had been DJ'ing steadily for 7 years, becoming well-established in the mid-west United States. His skill, combined with Mikes musical as well as technical expertise in the IDM/Industrial/Jazz/Soul & Funk music genres seemed to form a perfect blend of production capabilities, as well as a deeply bonded friendship. After a few months of tweaking, the sound they were going for was beginning to gel, and their first demo cd eventually ended up in Dara's hands. Not even a week had passed before Breakbeat Science came knocking on their door, and the boys realized that they really had something going for them. Half a year later, after much turmoil in both their personal lives, "Stars in the Dark" was made, and quickly picked up by Rohan of Bassbin, along with several other tracks, and the ball really began rolling for the two of them.

Shortly after the songs had been picked up by Rohan, the relationship between Mike and Jack had begun to strain their friendship, and it was agreed that it would be best if Jack opted to leave the project. Mike was then left to take up the reigns of the project, which, on the creative/musical side, he had held the captains seat from the beginning. The music of Random Movement had become even more finely tuned, and singles were being picked up by labels such as Innerground, Creative Source, Liquid V, Bingo, Progress, Timeless, Zeropoint, and most recently Nu Directions. Collaborations between Mike and Focus (formerly of Basic Operations) have landed record deals with Bingo and Innerground as well. Mikes natural tendency has been to play out doing a live set, incorporating his near-25 years of musical experience into both a technical and uplifting soulful performance, jamming riffs on keys as well as sequencing his own material live. He has also managed to slide comfortably into the role as DJ, playing in various places across the states. His loose-swinging, deep and soulful vibes take most club goers onto his own personal journey of introspection and enlightenment, commanding music appreciators both new and old to turn their heads. Playing everything from classics to brand new gems, the Random Movement DJ set seems to touch all in the crowd thru out the night.

Mike is currently working on a number of releases with Innerground among many others being kept under raps for now. Random Movement Radio can be heard on Bassdrive.com every Wednesday from 5-8 CMT, and will offer a wide range of music mostly related to the Drum n' Bass genre, but don't be surprised if the program ventures out into other realms. Expect to hear new guest artists weekly as well as gear reviews, contests, recording tips, and other dialog that would interest a wider range of listeners. Random Movement collaborations will continue to hit a broader spectrum of artists such as Alix Perez, Redeyes, Atlantic Connection, Chino, and more musicians on the soulful tip. He is still sampling away from his vinyl collection, as well as writing new music daily, and hopes to have a whole host of new singles on various labels around the globe.


MIXMASTER DOC
(Driven AM | 31 Records | Innerground | Creative Source | Sonorous | Brand Nu | Mac 2 | Horizons | Sidechain | BIOS | South Carolina)

With his first signing to Doc Scott's legendary 31 Records, Dan Brady AKA Mixmaster Doc, burst onto the drum & bass scene seemingly overnight. Humbled by the support of a whos who list of A-list DJ's such as Fabio, Marky, NuTone, Lynx, Commix, LTJ Bukem, Asides & Goldie to name but a few, he became focused on producing the old school sound that originally drew him in at age 13. Born and raised in NJ, Doc spent most of his youth a slave to DJ culture, buying tapepacks, digging in the crates, and of course spending hours a day behind the decks. Even before he was able to drive, his grandmother made sure he never missed a beat, taking him to all the area records stores and at times even driving him to raves so he could play his first gigs.

Though Dan's original career was to be in medicine, hence the name "Doc", he couldn't shake his overwhelming passion for drum & bass. His move to Myrtle Beach, SC, where he currently resides, marks the pivital moment where he gave up medicine and instead began to devolop his trademark sound. Known for his cinematatic atmoshpheres, use of classic drum and bass breaks, and of course his earth shattering bass, Doc's music quickly became popular with both djs and ravers a like.

One cant help but hear Doc's influences in music. Whether its the sub pounding bristol basslines or the eerie scifi vibe that was such a part of the legendary blue note sound, Doc's music takes us back to a time when the music was alive and fresh. When the music was more then just music, when it was a way of life.


SABURUKO
(Horizons Music Group | NYC)

In a year that saw more than its fair share of newcomers step into the spotlight of the international drum and bass community, few were received better than Brooklyn-based, UK-bred Saburuko. Though 2007 saw only a handful of releases by the former duo (comprised of Russell Knight and Ed Parker who left Saburuko in Jan 08), it was clearly a case of quality over quantity, as the scene's most established taste-makers and DJs alike took to Saburuko's deep, forward-thinking, yet familiar sound. After finally finishing several tunes, Russell and Ed now dubbed Saburuko (Japanese for "ones who serve"), were beginning to become a favourite of internet and pirate radio Djs alike and in turn were directed toward the much respected Horizons camp. In April of 2007, Saburuko's debut The Boro Park EP was released on Horizons. When Marcus Intalex commented, "Debut releases don't come much better than this", the duo knew they were onto something. Their musical output has thus far found its way onto popular compilation albums / podcasts and more importantly labels such as Crisis, Progress Ltd., Future Thinkin' and their primary home, Horizons. By August, following the release of the extremely popular and thematic "Warped", Saburuko became certain to progress. Garnering attention from radio icons such as Fabio and Grooverider, Dj Flight, Bailey, and Chrissy Chris, their music has now found its place in the record collections of drum and bass aficionados worldwide. Likewise, Saburuko have seen a significant number of collaborations and remixes by and with various artists including: Random Movement, The Insiders, Kjell, Amaning, Bachelors of Science, Hobzee, Digital & Lutin, Morphy, Mix Master Doc, Insight, Brother, Soulmatic, Style Control, Stunna, Zyon Base, Will Miles, and Ant TC1. As 2007 came to a close, this list continued to expand as did their popularity and acclaim. This became evident upon the release of the seminal track "I Feel Love" that topped the Drum and Bass Arena download chart at number one for over five weeks. 2008 is here and Saburuko are not showing any signs of stopping regardless of Edward deciding to venture out on his own. The new-year found Russell(who continues with the name of Saburuko)embarking on his first proper foreign tour which found dates in Massachusetts, Toronto, London, Bristol, Cardiff, Leeds, Oxford, Edinburgh and Cork that included radio appearances throughout the UK and a video shoot for Drum and Bass Arena TV. With releases forthcoming on Horizons and its latest subsidiary Inside, as well as the aptly-titled Integral and Sonorous; Russell Saburuko is not just up and coming, he's are already here.
